Wind Storm....

We had a wind storm here this afternoon....at 106 temperature, it started blowing hard...Alan was in the garage and heard something hitting the garage door, went outside and it was tree limbs that had broken off...no real damage but scary.....then the electricity went off, and we heard sirens..turned out that a tree had blown over onto a power line and started a fire in the mobile home park that is at the intersection within walking distance of our house.....desert wind storms are fairly common here but this one was a little worse than most...great for drying clothes though if I remember to use plenty of clothes pins!

August is usually our warmest month and this one is no exception...its been in the 100s all last week...poor duck! We set our sprinkler on mist and leave it on for her...most days she sits under it.....otherwise she pants and there is nothing worse to see than a duck panting......she always has lots of water to wade in but the silly thing doesn't know it...I actually have to pick her up and put her in the water, otherwise she won't go in....
sorry, no photos today......blogger is acting up again.....
